Baseline Killer Trial UPDATE: Prosecutor Calls Mark Goudeau "Ravenous Wolf"
Mark Goudeau began a trial for his life yesterday, with a county prosecutor telling jurors that an overriding need to rape drove the defendant to commit a rash of sexual assaults, robberies, and nine murders during a rampage that ended with his September 2006 arrest.
Cohen said Goudeau's DNA turned up on five of the victims, key evidence that certainly will be debated during a trial expected to last several months.
For example, he said, "There is not a single piece of evidence found at [one of the crime] scene(s) that corroborates the DNA -- which the defense will contest."
